National Hospital Week celebrates America’s hospitals, a place where medicine and miracles happen, as well as the women and men who support the health and well-being of their communities through dedication and compassionate care.
We want to take this time to highlight a few of our #hospitalheroes that truly exemplify one of our leading motives, which is to be more than successful and be significant. Our foremost goal is to drive success and significance in our hospital partners across the country because that’s where we get ours.
Snapshots of Significance
>>> We see hospitals build success and significance by recruiting and retaining physicians who will positively and passionately serve their communities and patients. For example, Canton-Potsdam Hospital, a community healthcare facility in northern New York, successfully doubled the size of their medical staff by embracing their leaders and physician champions into the interview team and removing barriers, facilitating hires more quickly and with greater matching precision. Under the direction of Carlos Alberto, Assistant VP of Medical Staff & Business Development, they deliver an unparalleled interview experience and offer unique incentives that are relevant and attractive to top candidates.
>>> Trampas Hutches, CEO of Melissa Memorial Hospital, has effectively worked in partnership with his recruiter to succeed in attracting and hiring multiple family medicine physicians to this critical access hospital in Holyoke, Colorado. He overcomes the challenges of recruiting to a rural community of 2,300 residents by focusing on what is key to recruitment success: 1) differentiate the hospital and community; 2) leave no doubt about their commitment to helping physicians be successful there and 3) being responsive – because timing is everything. Through this focus on engaging the best-fit physicians for their hospital, the team is ultimately driving the significance of their support to the community.
>>> Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital, is one of the leading employers in Sweetwater, Texas, and has served Nolan County for more than 40 years. This highly engaged community is vested in successful recruitment efforts for the hospital, where physicians and staff are “all in” under the leadership of Hospital CEO, Donna Boatright. Having devoted her entire professional career to serving the hospital and community, she focuses on adjusting to the constant change in healthcare, making investments to modernize the hospital and attracting great physicians, driving success and significance.
These three short narratives are representative of the hundreds of #hospitalswithsignificance that we are proud to call our partners.
We salute and thank all the people who make hospitals places where medicine and miracles happen.
